    Adding permisisons to new disk

    I am using Ubuntu Desktop 9.4.

    After reading various posts, I have managed to auto mount my 2nd disk.

    I can however not create any folders or save to it; only browse.

    I have tried the following but it doesn't seem to do anything

    sudo chgrp users /media/disk-1
    sudo chmod g+w /media/disk-1
    sudo chmod +t /media/disk-1

    Basically I want any user to be able to access and write or delete from the disk

    Any ideas

    Re: Adding permisisons to new disk

    Still no joy, when I try change the group from root to users I get told that I don't have permission.. even when logged on as root.

    I've tried making changes to the other options but doesn't appear to work. Are you able to give me more details?

    Cheers

    Try this:

    Code:
    sudo chown /mount_point your_user_name:your_group -rwxrwxrwx
    This should allow read, write and executable permissions for owner, group and all others.

    What is the filesystem?

    If spcwingo's suggestion does not work, you might try unmounting the partition, and then changing permissions with

    Code:
    gksu nautilus

    But this will do it for a certain user, I want it to apply to all users in the "Users" group.

    Did you see the second part of my post?

    This should allow read, write and executable permissions for owner, group and all others.

    When I do

    chown /media/disk-1 sysadmin:users -rwxrwxrwx

    I get

    chown: invalid option --'r'

    I am using ubuntu 9.04

    Talking Re: Adding permisisons to new disk

    Finally got it using nautilus.

    What I was doing wrong was trying to set permissions on the mounted disk, instead of unmounting it and then going to the actual mount point.

    I would like to know what I was doing wrong with the chown command though.

    Cheers and thanks for your patience.
